Gotta say I'm done with the young-people bashing. They are acting no more foolish and self-indulgent than prior generations. Many carry a LOT of anxiety, and no small sense of betrayal about what we, the elders, have allowed to happen to the planet and to the institutions our own elders built. It's our job to keep teaching them why we need them to comply (hard to do when we are judging), and it's our job to say, "Thank you. I know it's hard to give up a chunk of your youth for the common good."
